Review #101 | /r/Scotch Review #37 – Kilkerran Work In Progress #6 – Sherry
The Schtick: This comes from the Glengyle distillery. This is a yearly release from Kilkerran displaying a different maturation. This is #6 which features sherry wood.
Distiller: Kilkerran (Glengyle)
ABV: 46% ABV
Age: 10 Years
Nose: It’s sweet and smokey and the sherry peeks through. To be honest, I didn’t have any idea what a typical Kilkerran profile is but I love the marrying of the sweet and smokey. The sherry is a great touch on top.
Taste: Honey, smoke and sherry sit at the front. I get a lot of similar notes as some of the lighter Bruichladdich’s I’ve had in the past which is interesting given the regional difference. It’s like a delicious barbecue in my mouth but with sherry introduced as well.
Finish: Medium long and gentle. Well blended. The sherry really shines here peeking through the smoke. I like that the smoke is a bit heavier in the finish. Very savory.
Overall: Interesting but delicious. It’s a good product from Kilkerran.
Thanks for reading!
